9/26 Luke Thompson: The State Of #NeverTrump & the First Presidential Debate

September 26, 2016

The different flavors of #NeverTrump, from Rubio to Kasich and Bush to Ted Cruz. What is the residual layover from trump in the GOP. The demographic “cul-de-sac” and how the Trump nomination has shown the myth of the untapped conservative voters is a myth. The Trump campaign as a brash re-branding of “No-Labels,” and how it motivates Trump’s monomania on “otherness.” Should Hillary try hard to provoke Trump in the debate or be content to play “teacher’s pet.”

On the fun half – Mike Pence is animated by some external force to say he is not a puppet, Paul Ryan says congress will be making laws for Trump, Chuck Todd wants more grieving Benghazi mom, and your calls an IMs.
